Regardless of the size of your conference room business, it is very likely that there will be a considerable portion of coffee lovers in your midst. Choosing a machine that is right, however, for not only for your team’s tastes, but for your business is crucial.
Whether this is about trying to reduce outgoing costs, the amount of staff your machine needs to serve or ease of maintenance, each business has unique requirements.
With over 50 years experience supplying coffee machines for your conference room, at Nexus we have extensive knowledge of the elements that are important when picking a hot drinks dispenser.
When it comes to hot drinks dispensers for conference rooms, the two most popular types of machines are bean to cup and single serve. When making a decision about which is right for your company there are three key factors that should be considered– machine maintenance, hot drink selection, and whether you will charge.
Maintaining your conference room coffee machine
Bean to cup machines grind coffee internally, this means that they will need to be disassembled after a certain amount of use for cleaning. Whilst the frequency of cleaning will naturally vary from model-to-model, in workplaces with larger teams, this can mean fairly frequent maintenance.
This issue can, however, be navigated to some degree if your business is happy to train staff properly on how and when to clean the conference room coffee machine. As a result of their capsule brewing method, choosing a single serve machine can be another, more convenient, way to solve this problem.
The hot drink selection that suits your conference room
The second key element to keep in mind when picking between these two options is hot drink selection.
Despite coffee often being the preferred choice of hot drink in most businesses, it is important to ensure that everyone’s preferences are accounted for. At Nexus Drinks, our single serve Flavia and Klix models serve some of the UK’s most popular hot drinks brands, such as Mars, Kenco, and Yorkshire Tea.
These machines are great for conference rooms people have varied tastes.
Charging for drinks
When it comes to selecting a coffee machine for your conference room, it is also important to consider the expense of hot drinks. In smaller teams, providing free hot drinks can be simple and cheap way to boost morale, but in larger teams this can become pricey very quickly. Our machines, such as the Flavia, can be fitted to charge for drinks if this is something that you think would be better suited for you business.
Can using coffee machines in conference rooms be environmentally friendly?
At Nexus, we are knowledgeable of the environmental issues that come with packaging. This is why we work closely with organisations such as Terracycle for packaging that is more difficult to recycle and also guarantee that we supply sustainably packaged options in every area that we can.
